I’m ramping up for a summer of conventions, and I hope to get some interviews in with artists and game designers.  In previous years, I was able to meet such amazing artists as Andy Hopp, Charles Urbach, and Larry Elmore.

The current schedule looks like this:

Origins:  June 23rd-27th

Gen-Con: August 5th-8th

Wizard World Chicago Comic Con: August 19th-22nd

Penny Arcade Expo:  September 3rd-5th

These conventions are an excellent opportunity to congregate with other gamers, network within the industry, expand your metagame, and to learn a lot about gaming culture.  If you have the time, check the side bar for the links to these events (if the links are no longer in the sidebar, then the events have long passed).
